Marco Island Historical Museum features a presentation on Florida’s Shorebirds
The Marco Island Historical Museum is delighted to host Shorebirds & Birds of Prey, a PowerPoint presentation by Steve Mutart on August 22, at 2 pm. Join us amid the beautiful Florida Shorebirds & Birds of Prey photographic exhibition by Marie Adams, which is currently on display in the museum until September 26, 2013. Artist Marie Adams will be present and seating is limited.
Mutart, a retired real estate lawyer from the Philadelphia area, has garnered a life-long passion for birds and volunteers with the Conservancy of Southwest Florida and Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. This knowledge and passion has led to bird walks and educational training sessions for students to identify birds by sound as well as sight. Mutart’s engaging and entertaining lectures can also be seen through the Renaissance Academy of Florida Gulf Coast University, where he discusses birds, history and various other subjects.
Long famous for its Key Marco Cat- one of the most remarkable and influential discoveries in North American archaeology- the Marco Island Historical Museum, just sixteen miles south of Naples, explores Southwest Florida’s Calusa Indians and brings this vanished civilization to life with informative displays and an exciting recreated village scene. Temporary and traveling exhibits trace the settlement of this subtropical island paradise from its early pioneer roots as a fishing village, pineapple plantation and clam cannery, through its explosive growth and development in the 1960’s by the Miami-based Deltona Corporation.
